    40% of our league points have come in the space of 5 days. <laugh>

    True but any side can suffer from a lapse and an opposition can score a goal. However, Norwich were passive for most of the game. I am delighted that Stiepermann didn't start :D!

    Reality check. We’ve narrowly beaten the two worst teams in the league. Not always a given with Saints. Don’t care about how we got the points, we got them.Much harder on Sunday. I will be there suffering.

    If he keeps fit, he could well be on stand-by in case the afore-mentioned guys pick up the dreaded injury. And my comment was a little tongue in cheek.

    Really really important 3 points there.

    1st half, genuinely pleasurable to watch. High tempo passing, closing down the opposition and two goals. Apart from the odd stray pass, some lovely football.

    Second half, some OK football, but bloody hell we were lucky. I thought bringing Romeu and Adams was a mistake, but we hung on, so Ralph was right.

    Cracking result. Really pleased

    Great first half. Dodgy second. Ings, JWP, Bednarek were all excellent,

    Cedric had a poor second half and I thought Romeu really struggled when he came on. His passing was diabolical.

    Something has clicked with these players.. they were finally fighting like they realised they're in a relegation fight.

    They were fighting for every ball.

    Cant ask for more than that. We always struggle at St James', but they arent a great side. Fingers crossed.

    The reality is that they is very little difference in the actual ability of 10 teams in the PL. I feel outside the present top 4 Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and Wolves are better than SFC in varying degrees, as for the rest, no!! It is a matter of gaining confidence and momentum.

    Like all players who have been out of the team for a while. Needs to play to get up to speed. Chicken and egg?

    I am just used to him being such a neat player. This season as a whole he has not been himself.

    1st half, we were excellent, Pukki's goal aside although he's done that to plenty of teams so not shocked it happened.
    I thought Norwich pushed forward more confidently after the CDM subs, I guess they strengthen the defence and give the forwards more confidence to commit to attacks. We mostly held them off pretty well apart from a mad 5 minutes so I'm pretty happy all told.

    Don’t even suggest Ings for England. We need him fit and scoring for us.

    I thought Che Adams played pretty well.
